Famous for being black.
Popular for not being a Bush, which was really the only thing he ran on.
But after that he has pretty much fallen flat as just another political hack. Which was, of course, what he was all along. Before being president he was a 3rd rate junior senator from the most corrupt political machine in US history from a state that holds the distinction of having the most politicians in prison.
He made grand claims that he would be the most transparent presidency in history, he has been the opposite. He claimed that he would be the most inclusive administration in history drawing equally from all sides, he has been the opposite.
He was given a Nobel prize, most of us are still wondering WTF they were thinking given that he did less than nothing to deserve it. He succeeded in devaluating the Nobel to the point that for many it is now meaningless.
His, and all of Washington's, popularity is the lowest in history with the possible exception of W. Bush.
How will history see him? Unknown but not looking good.
Those who know me will tell you that I could care less about what color, or gender, the president is. Nor do I care what party they come from, although don't see an actual good president coming from either the Democrats or GOP.
We need a President, Congress and Senate that are working solely in America's best interest with America foremost in everything they do and who have a grasp of the history that has brought us ruin rather than glory.
There has been no such thing in my lifetime, and I've been here for quite a while. Since I first started voting in 1972 I have yet to be able to vote for a candidate. Although my first vote, for Nixon who claimed he would immediately get us out of the Vietnam fiasco, might be the exception to that. Nixon did in fact get us out of Vietnam mostly by the end of 1973 and totally by 1975. And he ended the draft as promised and the last draftee was in April 1972.
We all know Nixon's end came with shame, though he really didn't do anything that other had done before him, he just got caught. No I'm not a Nixon fan.
